Langhe Nebbiolo Simane, Reverdito 2020

| /

This red wine could be sold as Barolo San Giacomo, but the producer considers the soil to be too heavily clay to produce perfect Barolo. How lucky we are as it would be triple the price.

In recent years, the estate has increased little by little as Michele and Sabina Reverdito take advantage of their ‘young vigneron’ status to plant/acquire more land. They have bought (respectively) 0.36 hectares and 0.125 hectares of the La Serra vineyard in La Morra, immediately below the famous Roberto Voerzio’s vines. Lots of south facing vineyards here. The first vintage was in 2000.  Now the family have 20 hectares of vineyards, at altitudes of between 300 and 420 metres. The age of the vines ranges between six and thirty years.

The wines are aged for between one year and thirty months, depending on the vineyard and the vintage.  Barriques are no longer used. 

100% Nebbiolo, the wine has deep, delicious red fruit notes you expect from the grape variety as well as hints of liquorice and tobacco.  These are soft wines, light in body, but still with plenty of backbone and authority. You will love them, and they are drinking now.
